Agitating JNIMS employees defer mass resignation plan after talk with government

CM cites unhealthy financial position of the state as the main factor for government’s delay in the implementation of the 7th ROP.

Agitating employees of Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS), Imphal, have deferred their plan to tender mass resignation from their jobs following a talk with the government on Wednesday. The employees of the only state run medical college in the state are on strike demanding implementation of the 7th Revision of Pay.

Alleging that the state government has failed to translate into action which the former had agreed to implement, the employees under the banner of Teachers Association, the Association for All Non-Teaching Staffs and the Trained Nurses Association of JNIMS on Tuesday decided to submit mass resignation Wednesday. However, the striking employees’ body postponed their planned mass resignation following an assurance from chief minister N Biren Singh who is also the chairman of the JNIMS Society under which the institute runs.

The chief minister reportedly gave the assurance to the leaders of the striking employees’ association during a meeting held at the chief minister’s secretariat.

From the government side, the marathon meeting was attended by Agriculture minister, O Lukhoi, Education minister, S Rajen and MLA, S Ranjan (advisor (health) to CM) apart from the chief secretary and officials concerned of the state government.

A reliable source said that during the meeting, the chief minister convinced the leaders of the striking association that the government has the desire to address the demands of the employees, while citing unhealthy financial position of the state as the main factor for government’s delay in the implementation of the 7th ROP. 

The chief minister later reportedly asked his advisor (Health), Dr S Ranjan and the chief secretary to look into the feasibility. 

Earlier, the chief minister skipped attending the state level World Health Day celebration function at JNIMS auditorium in the backdrop of the ultimatum served by the employees for mass resignation.

The chief minister, later in another function held at Kangla fort, admitted that he had to skip the function as he had to consult and find ways and means for fulfilling the demands of the employees.
The chief minister was supposed to grace that function as chief guest.
